I seemed to have as many friends in Marlow Heights as I did in the “Heights”. The Catholic school thing contributed to that mostly. Names like, O’Neil, Stevens, Long, Harrell, Hessler, Hoffman, Dahl, Pohl, …. I know many former Heights residents that migrated no further than Southern Maryland – Waldorf, Calvert County. I left the Heights and moved to Laurel, MD till ’95. Then I moved to Hammond, LA – 60 minutes north of Nawlins’. This website is a nice idea. It kinda jogs the memory. ED

I lived in the Marlow Heights area, Oxon Hill, Temple Hills and Clinton from the time I was discharged from the Air Force in 1964. Worked for the Library of Congress for 33 years. Retired to Lake Monticello in Central VA in 1997. I do miss the Mighty Mos, Hot Shoppes Juniors, and the Steak in a sack. I have learned on your websight that the Steak in a Sack in still open. Will have to visit them next time I am in the area. I am about 125 miles from Marlow Heights. I want to compliment you on a wonderful websight that brings back many memories. How about Saturday nights and the Oxon Hill firehouse in the 60's

Most of my memories of growing up from age 7 on were in that area. Places include Forest Heights, Birchwood City, Glassmanor, Oxon Hill, Kirby Hill, River Ridge, Fort Washington, Marlow Hights, Hillcrest Heights, Temple Hills and other neighborhoods. Some areas were too rural to even have names when we lived there. I even taught for no more than a year each at Suitland JHS and La Reine. I remember going to the Woodies in Iverson Mall after my orthodontist appointments and the Hecht's in Marlow Heights. Heck, I remember when Eastover had a Woodies and the Hot Shoppes across the DC line at Southern Avenue SE. The chocolate milk shakes, chicken noodle soup, Mighty Moes, etc.

Great to see old familiar places, brings back a lot of good memories. Grew up in that area from 1965 till we moved to San Antonio in 1977. Would have graduated from Oxon Hill in 1978. Good website!

Its unbelievable the names that I see in this guessbook (memories) and the places we have all spread out to. Yes, mom and dad are still in the same house on the same street in Marlow Heights and prolly always will be!! Old Beaumont Street pretty much stills looks the same and believe it or not, there are still a few 'original' families living there from the 60s & 70s!! Keep up the great work Chuck!!!

I loved the carnival that came every year to the Marlow Hgts. Shopping Center parking lot. I lived on the corner of St. Clair Dr. & Kenton Place...you could see my house from the very top of the ferris wheel! Shopping with my mom there when I was little...going to Little Bo Peep (clothes) and Woolworths (and getting lunch at the counter & popping a balloon to see how much you'd pay for a banana split) There was a photography studio in the shopping center at one of the exits...my baby picture hung in their front window until I was 15 years old! Going out without adults for the first time to Marlow Hgts movie theater (1 screen - Pippy Longstocking) and eating at Jr. Hot Shoppes! I could go on & on! Hanging out on the "corner" with the Gaylors, Smallwoods....

What a great place to grow up! We played outside all day and didn't lock our doors. I lived at 2308 Olson Street, which was a great street for sledding in the snow. When I went to Benjamin Stoddard, my dog would sometimes follow me to the school and I would have to walk him home then go back to school. I loved going to Iverson Mall. It was such a cool place to hang out. We lived there from 1959 until my parents moved in 1974, while I was in college. I think I've only been back twice in all those years but plan on going again in the next month or so to cruise around and see the sights.

I was sent the link to your page by my sister, who is now in West VA. But she keeps up with her past a lot. I truly truly enjoyed it!!!! Saved it and plan on checking back in a lot. I too have lots of photos from schools. Am currently finding them.

WOW! This does bring back some memories. Sad the area has seen such a decline. It's tough for others to understand that it really WAS a decent, safe place to grow up in.

Yes there really was a gang called the Marlow Manglers. Myself and two friends were acosted by them across from the 7-11 in the bowling alley parking lot. My mom was the manager at the Marlow Theatre from 1977 - 1986 when she retired. Marlow Heights was the best place ever to grow up for me.
